Currently, companies that manufacture compressed air rifles incorporate a telescopic sight in the weapon to sell everything as a set or package, alluding to the action of being ready to go on a small game.
In the case of big game, the optics of the telescopic sights offered in the package are of good quality; enough to not require in most cases an accessory that reinforces it.


Now, if we think about the same thing but in the Small Game section, we have a problem, since mostly .22 gauge compressed air rifles reach the hands of end users with a half-inch telescopic sight and quite basic supports.


Ok, all this would be fine, if we are going to spend all the pellets or pellets shooting in our backyard straw figures or dolls, or if we go to the field to shoot at fixed cans on a day of good weather, but if we have to go Small game mounted on a boat, a van or an SUV is not going to help us much.


Mostly the .22 compressed air rifles that are sold today are at the height of who acquires them, of course as long as users follow our instructions on choosing the best rifle for small game.


So, if all this is true and valid, why not have a telescopic sight that meets our needs at the crucial moment when we need to aim and shoot as accurately as possible …?


The perfect Christmas gift, a compressed air rifle
We have to make a gift at Christmas and we think of a compressed air rifle, well, we go to the store and we find that all models come with a standard telescopic sight, we are running out of time and we must buy, we make the purchase with the standard look.

After a while they tell us that even with experience shooting our gift it fails, the sight is fogged up, and we lose prey in front of friends who have the same rifle model but with a better telescopic sight.

The result is logical, manufacturers deliver the best in the air rifle but leave the basics for the telescopic sights that go with the rifle.

What telescopic sight can I choose when buying my first .22 rifle?

Several users have asked us this same question, after seeing our advice and telling us their experiences, everything coincides with what we have been telling here, in practice it is so; the users feel fruity because they fail to make the shot they believe will be the best of the day, the dam escapes and the worst is listening to the teasing of friends.

Telescopic sights, the tips..


Well, it’s time to make recommendations, and let’s go for it then ..
We will list the characteristics you should consider to make your choice, then you can decide according to your budget:

  • The weight of the target: it should be made of composite material as light as possible, a 22-gauge compressed air rifle weighs about 2 kilograms if you buy a sight that adds more weight, the rifle will tend to unbalance when using it and that it’s not what we want
  • The power of increase: for a 22 gauge that does not have a very long range in distance an increase in the sight of x16 would be more than enough.
  • The grid: For the distance in which the 22 gauge develops the lattice is not very decisive, and less decisive even if it has a sight with a range of about 100 yards with elevation adjustment, in any case the lattice must be small for a long distance target.
  • The Objective and its adjustment: Shooting small targets at maximum distance with precision is what is achieved with the objective adjustment, having a clear image is phenomenal.
  • The lens: You should make sure you have a lens of at least 42mm for your 22-caliber rifle, some believe it is a lot for this caliber but in this section more is better.
